"Director Jenn BeVard gives [End of the Rainbow] a lively and compelling production at the Lesher."
- Mercury News, Judy Garland gives the performance of her life in Walnut Creek

"The Wild Party blossomed in director Jenn BeVard's production of synchronized sprawl, recalling both the vaudeville framework of Chicago and the multi-story jigsaw of Follies."
- Bay Area Reporter, Best Theater of 2016

"Due to its quick pace and rotating cast of characters, Counterfeiters skates dangerously close to feeling frenetic but with tight direction from Krissy Vanderwarker and Jenn BeVard, the show remains cohesive, meaningful and a whole lot of fun.”
- Centerstage, Counterfeiters Review
